A romantic, quiet woodland hideaway, 15 minutes walking distance from the Pembrokeshire beaches of Abermawr and Aberbach.
Originally an artist's studio and pottery, the property incorporates many reclamation features including seating from a Suffolk chapel, shelving upcycled from GWR rail lifters, old piano timber for cupboards and a lamp made from an old post box stand! You'll also find some pieces of pottery on display from its working past, which the owners found during its renovation.
Sitting on the sofa feels like being in a treehouse as you get a stunning 'infinity view' through the immense beech tree canopy across the valley.
Wildlife is a big draw here, Tawny and Barn owls can be heard and there are regular sightings of lesser spotted woodpeckers. The area is also a haven for Bats, Foxes and Badgers can also be viewed from the deck, going about their lives in the valley below.
Woodland birds make the perfect companions to an alfresco breakfast on Snoozy Bears decking where the trees shimmer and rustle underneath an ever-moving canopy of dappled sunlight.
Listen to the surf on Abermawr beach, and the burbling stream in the valley, this amazing cabin feels off the beaten track, yet it's easy to get back to the real world. You may spot smoke rising out of nearby Abermawr cottage’s chimney, but that's the only telltale sign of any neighbours in this fairytale setting.
Snoozy Bear's king-size bedroom is a relaxing place to rest with traditional Welsh tapestry cushions from the nearby Tregwynt Woollen Mill and high-quality bedding. The Jotul wood burner keeps the cottage lovely and warm, perfect for year-round breaks.
There are several walks to explore from the front door, but you have the comfort of knowing that when you return, and once walking boots are kicked off; this magical Pembrokeshire hideaway really starts to come to life; at dusk why not light the BBQ and have a meal cooked in the outdoors to the sound of the waves on nearby Abermawr beach.
Live like a local, discovering the best-hidden gem restaurants, walks and attractions during your stay in this corner of Pembrokeshire; The historical city of St Davids is a short drive away and has a good choice of restaurants, pubs and cafes. After a day exploring the Pembrokeshire coast, retreat to the cosy interior and spend an hour or two watching a favourite film with a glass of wine before hunkering down on the sofa, watching the world darkening outside.

Made in 1997 to commemorate the bicentenary of the 1797 invasion by the French - the last time the British mainland was invaded! This amazing piece of work was created by local needle workers and tells the story in the style of that told by the famous Bayeux Tapestry.
